Adel Taarabt’s connection to Benfica has been one of ups and downs, but he has improved a lot under Bruno Lage and is now having a good time with Nélson Veríssimo. In 2020 he accepted a lower salary and explained why in an interview with ‘The Athletic’.
“I wanted to do it because the club was amazing and always supported me in every step I went through. It was the right decision.”
This season, Taarabt has played 35 games and scored one goal in all competitions.
